    Notes 
    • TOBIAS SWITZER, was a descendant of a Palatine family from Assenheim, Germany who were settled on the Southwell estate in Co. Limerick, Ireland in 1709, during Queen Anne?s reign. He is probably the Tobias Switzer who farmed at Cow Park in 1830. (Tithe Applotment record). His son TOBIAS SWITZER 1820/21? 16 December 1873 married CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH WATSON on 11 January 1853 at Kilquane, St Patricks Parish, Limerick. At the time Tobias was land steward to JOHN DELMAGE, at Ballyfineen and Charlotte was an upper servant at Whitehall. Charlotte was born 10 June 1824 at Woolwich, Kent, ENG (the daughter of JAMES WATSON, 1775-1854 and ELEANOR BEARMAN 1802-1862. James Watson was in the Royal Artillery and retired to Bere Island, Co. Cork). Charlotte died 9 August 1890 at Maryborough, Queensland, Australia.

      From the mid 1860?s Tobias Switzer was land steward to Henry Puxley at Dunboy Castle, Castletown Berehaven, Co. Cork. Charlotte Switzer?s family lived nearby on Bere Island. After Tobias?s death Charlotte and the family stayed on at Dunboy Castle. John Thomas and Godfrey Tobias both joined the Navy. Samuel set out for Australia in 1879 on the Selkirkshire. He joined his uncle JOHN WATSON who had settled in Maryborough, Queensland. Samuel paid the deposit for his mother, his older brother and his sister to come to Australia in 1882 on the Manora. John Thomas was serving on the ?HMS Achilles? at the time and was bought out of the navy. Godfrey remained in the navy.
